p3885565838-4-2450022

We continue our close-up look at the flowers found in the gardens of Antigua Guatemala with camarón amarillo, as we know the yellow shrimp plant in Guatemala. The most popular colors for the shrimp flowers are red, white and yellow.

The scientific name for the yellow shrimp flower is Pachystachys lutea. The red shrimp flower’s scientific name is Beloperone guttata or Justicia brandegeana. Both camarones belong to the Acanthaceae family.
